Bridal Mashup...

Hi there,

It's party time at the Friday Mashup and this week Amanda is challenging us to make something with a party theme - either an invitation, favour, birthday card, thank you card or decoration...

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
1. Make a project using the " Party Time " theme.
2. Or Make a project using the " Box in a Bag " tutorial.
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Box in a Bag with a Party Time theme."
I decided to make a little Bridal Shower ensemble, with an invitation and a little matching favour...

I stamped the dress from Love & Laughter with Blushing Bride ink, cut it out and added some pleated ribbon to the hem. The rest is pretty straightforward - I added some pearls to the dress and Blushing Bride layer for a bit more elegance. The favour box was made using the milk carton die, which I embossed using one of the textured impressions embossing folders. Here's a view of both sides:

Both sides have punched squares (whisper white and basic grey) - one side has a heart stamped with an image from I {heart} Hearts and punched out with the coordinating punch; the other side was stamped with the same dress as the card, with 'Amour' from Artistic Etchings over the top. I punched a couple of holes in the top and threaded some white tafetta ribbon through to make a bow.

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup blog and check out the rest of the design team's party creations!

Thanks for stopping by!
